Volunteering

Volunteering is an activity which takes lots of different forms: formal or informal, individual or in groups, inside or outdoors, locally or overseas. Volunteering is an activity which can suit every lifestyle, ability, interest and skill, while also having lots of fun in the process!

The activity of volunteering, or helping a community group of your own free will, can be described by a variety of terms: community service, activism, good samaritan, pro bono work, civic engagement - the list goes on.  Whatever term is used, all volunteering is undertaken:

  • to benefit the community and the volunteer
  • of the volunteer's own free will
  • for no financial payment
